UPMC opens clinic at central Pa. college

UPMC now has a presence at a midstate college.

UPMC has opened the Campus Clinic on the campus of Central Penn College in East Pennsboro Township. The clinic opened on Sept. 24.

The clinic provides a variety of healthcare services, including basic care and COVID-19 testing, to Central Penn students, faculty and staff.

This is the college’s first ever on-campus healthcare clinic.

The clinic is housed in suite 127, which is located at the intersection of College Hill Road and B Street on the college’s campus. The facility will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays for in-person visits, and walk-in appointments are available during those times. Virtual care will be available 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday by appointment.

For onsite visits, students and employees only need to present their Central Penn ID. Insurance information will not be required. Additional treatment and extended care will be available at Good Hope Urgent Care.

“We at UPMC Pinnacle Medical Group are excited regarding the growing collaboration with Central Penn College,” said Dr. Robert Nielsen, president and CEO, UPMC PHMG. “The combination of our onsite clinic and virtual urgent care will provide students cost-effective access to timely care. We look forward to this as a building block for many collaborative efforts with Central Penn College in the future.”
